Mediocre to very imaginative

Essex Pratt is definitely a wordsmith: he is almost poetic, very descriptive, and can turn a phrase. The stories run from mediocre to very imaginative. Some are gory, most disturbing, with only one happy ending that I can remember.. I think all would fit into the horror category. Alyssa Williams is a good narrator, but a male voice would be a better fit for many of these stories since most are told from a male’s perspective. So if you like imaginative, disturbing stories, and don’t mind a sometimes incongruous voice, then this collection is for you.

A very good story

An entertaining horror/ghost story about a group of teens who trespass into a long closed amusement park and what (or who) they encounter. This book goes a little deeper than the typical teen horror story. It is told from each perspective, with each person revealing a unique personality and perspective. Candela also gives us a stronger background to what is, or was, going on in the park. A very good story.

Can any thing else go wrong?

This is the first book in a series. It has terrorists, zombies, killer bees, bombs, witches, people with bad attitudes, an even a town with a bad attitude.. It also has some sympathetic characters that make you want to read or listen to the second book in the hope that things will get better. Can they get any worse? A good listen and a good start.

Dystopian Mystery

The Amnesia Game is an entertaining distopian mystery. Roman Jackson adds new twists to familiar themes to create a fast moving action packed story. The only problem is that this the first installment in a planned series so you are left hanging with an unfinished story. Eric McAllen did a good job narrating the various characters.

Entertaining Thriller Mystery

Brownstone is an entertaining thriller mystery. The story keeps you guessing, with many surprises along the way. It even has comic relief to offset the suspense. The narrator did a fine job with the characters . The first of a series.

It’s good to have a good AI when things go bad!

Simpoc is a well written , interesting,and clever audiobook. Much of what I find clever is that a great deal of the story is told from the point of view of Simpoc, an intelligent computer. The narrator does an outstanding job, and there are some interesting sound effects. Also, Perreault has several other audiobooks based on the same events, but with different perspectives.

Imaginative Science Fiction Short Stories

These four science fiction short stories are well written and very imaginative. The narrator seemed a little bland but the clever stories more than made up for this flaw. I definitely enjoyed this collection and am looking forward to his next collection.
